Rolling Stones Sell Out In Minutes
The Rolling Stones are on a roll with their two arena dates which sold out within seven minutes. The band are booked to play at the London O2 Arena on November 25 and 29. The least expensive seats which cost around $152 were sold inside three minutes, while the most expensive seats at over $600 were sold just minutes later, according to Rolling Stone magazine. Touts also snapped up tickets, which are already being listed for more than $20, 000. The surge of traffic crashed the Ticketmaster website, and many fans saw this warning: "We're experiencing high demand. You will be automatically directed to the page requested as soon as it becomes available. Thank you for your patience." A presale for US tickets at Newark's Prudential Center on December 13 and 15 went on sale on Saturday, with a general sale starting from Friday October 26. The band are set to earn $16 million from these four shows and will probably pocket $1 million each, and Mick Jagger has hinted that more dates will be announced. The organisers of the renown Glastonbury Festival in England have said they are keen to book the Stones as headliners for 2013. Did you manage to get a ticket for the Stones gigs? Let us know in the comments.
